    I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about the Droid 2? So far it's known that it's still being built, and maybe an October launch/release, however no known specs/size. Since the Shadow is already in "usage" phase, I thought that the Droid 2 would be "seen/heard about" already.:D

    Confirmed (through sources, however can change along the course) 04/16/10:
    - Release a couple of weeks before Halloween

    I doubt it. There were two different pics for the Shadow and Droid 2, and also it's known (through sources, and as of now) that the Shadow won't have a keyboard, while the Droid 2 will. So Shadow != Droid 2.:)

    I hope we can find some info for the Droid2. I have wanted the Droid for a while, but my NE2 isn't up until mid-May so by that time the Droid will showing some age, and I am worried about its physical keyboard. I still want a phone with a keyboard as I don't mind the thickness it adds, but reports are that the Droid has a less than stellar keyboard, so hopefully by May we'll have more concrete info on this guy so I can decide if I need to wait until it releases, or most likely grab the shadow.

    As far as I know (through reading) the Droid 2 will be launched/released with the Shadow, so both will launch in June/July for Verizon. I think that the Droid 2 will have front-facing camera and LTE (Verizon).

    Yeah I have been following the thread over at howardforums, and it seems hard to follow what bill was saying about the droid2 october phone and such. He is very suspicious in his answers and never gives much information without little subtleties that are hard to pick up on through text haha. He alwasy has to be mysterious with his answers.

    But either way I'm waiting till May and hoping well have lots of solid information and a hopeful release date by then :)

    ya im pretty sure the droid 2 will be released months after the shadow (if the shadow is still on track for a summer release).

    Ok, so the Droid 2 might get released a couple of weeks before Halloween :), but no LTE inside it.

    He's a tester for Motorola, from what I can gather. He meant that he'd have it by then for testing. He gets phones like 3-4 months before their release and tests them (and has to update their firmware like every other day, from what he's said).

    Yeah, Bill is a tester, Verizon phone tester I believe. So pretty much Bill knows what phones will get sold by Verizon because he tests them. That's just me of course, but we know that he tests phones a couple of months before the final product since the phone can change in the amount of time that he tests it (ie maybe hardware, and definitely bugs/firmware patches.)
    So he's getting to test the phone before the 4th of July, while we get the phone before Halloween.

    Sounds like this phone may have a 4.1" screen and most likely too late in the design to change it.

    And possibly leaving Moto Blur off of it.


    Edit: This comes from reading through the lines of bill23 at HF

    that is kind of what I got from Bill23 on hofo. I could deal with a 4.1" screen, but would for sure LOVE to get rid of motoblur:D

    Seemed to me like Verizon was the one that didn't wanna pay for Motoblur ... Although I could have misinterpreted what bill23 was trying to say there.

    Yeah, so the screen is 4.1" for sure now since it's somewhat too late to change the hardware at this stage. It will also have Moto Blur, which can be turned off quite easily haha.

    From Bill


    "I cant tell you have dyslexia by seeing how well you pay attention,you are correct shadow=4.1
    droid 2 = undisclosed"

    So it seem good to assume we don't really know what the Droid2 will have, 4.1 or 4.3 or something else completely....

    I can guarantee that the phone will not be released in June, it also probably won't be released in July.

    I think the picture is in need of a change.
